Last Quarter Moon (NASA, International Space Station, 08/22/11)

Editor's note: Wow, three images in a gorgeous series! I've added to our NASA Moon Images photoset: www.flickr.com/photos/28634332@N05/sets/72157624910405524/

 

A last quarter moon appears at the center of this night time photo taken from the International Space Station in Earth orbit. A thin line of the planet's atmosphere is the other illuminated object in the picture.
